[ ud-yat ] is the result of an analysis about the future society. We have created our own futuristic dystopia, in which we believe society is based on data sale and consumption and where there’s control of the information that we generate with our daily actions and interactions.

The way we perceive the world has changed with technology, finding our problems solved in a way we never thought of before. Human relationships have been simplified to numbers, our worries lessened by the accessibility that devices present to us. But who owns that information? Who is making a profit out of it? Have we lost somehow sense of reality?

Our theory is that users will access all information through an ocular interface, which are able to see when they take the Udyat pill. This is narrated through the story of three characters, two of them have their life´s controlled by Udyat and technology, the other one decides to live life by her own instinct.

Proposal: The Eye of Horus, or Udyat ‘the one who is complete’, was a symbol of magical powers, protective, purifying, healing, solar symbol that incarnated order, the unshakeable, the perfect state. The Udyat is a symbol of cosmic stability.

Ethymology: Horus was a son of Osiris, a god who was murdered by his own brother Seth. Horus held a series of fierce battles against Seth, to avenge his father. During this battles the contenders suffered multiple injuries and some vital losses, such was the mutilation of Horus’ left eye. But, thanks to the intervention of Toth, the Eye of Horus was substituted by the Udyat, so the god could regain sight. This new eye was special and had magic traits.

Icons and interface: The Icons are representatives of basic elements included in various interfaces. Icons are displayed around the main element, creating a hierarchical organized interface.
